50 Ways To Feel Like A Bodacious Babe – The Feel Good List!

  • Make eye contact with attractive prospects as you walk down the street – don’t shy away when they smile or turn their head to catch a bit more of glimpse of you…
  • Make a list of all the things you love about yourself.  Frame it and put it up somewhere that will help you on those days you feel anything less than fab.
  • Treat your body to the most sensual fabrics – adorn yourself with the best and relish how much it makes you feel like a goddess.
  • Stand up for yourself.  Assert your confidence and self-worth – never let anyone tell you who or what you are.
  • Pour yourself a bubble bath loaded with your favourite scents and candles while digging into a Sextrology book.
  • Smile and laugh.  There are few things more beautiful than the look of joy on someone’s face.
  • Embrace colour.  Wear it everywhere from your lips to your lingerie.  Colour = confidence and being comfortable standing out.
  • Emulate your favourite icon.  Study mannerisms they embody and try them on for size.
  • Be brave.  Be bold.  Be yourself.  Understand that you are your own original.
  • Dress up with nowhere to go.  Take the time to do your hair, makeup, and slip on something purely fantasy that has nothing to do with practicality.
  • Invest in a record player and take in the tunes of Frank Sinatra as if he is in the room sitting there singing only to you.
  • Master the smokey eye and red lip classics.  You will always prevail with these beauty skills by your side!
  • Run away and create your own adventure.  Be a bond girl, superhero or femme fatale if only in your imagination.
  • Feed your body foods that make your skin glow and don’t let you crash (try matcha tea – my new favourite!).  Snap off a piece of dark chocolate to indulge in a healthy way.
  • Take time out of your busy schedule for “you time”.  Read, try a new recipe, go for a jog, a drink, or a glimpse at the latest collection at your favourite museum.
  • Explore your fantasies, don’t hide from them.
  • Surround yourself with other fun loving bodacious babes.  None of this female cattiness – it’s all about empowerment and honesty ladies!
  • Be unapologetic in your opinions.  Opinions are a personal right – exercise them with panache!
  • Dance!  Be it in your underwear alone at home to your favourite Spice Girls tune, or in a club with a partner – like no one’s watching!
  • Be selective with your time.  There’s no need rushing through life trying to be in three different places at once (how utterly unsophisticated!).  Make a decision to attend things that truly interest you, and when you do, go all out with having a grandiose time.
  • Empower others.  It’s hard enough to master applying it to yourself, so when you finally get to the point of perfecting lifting yourself up – share the love and pass on the lesson!  Tips and tricks that have worked for you make for the best and most appreciated advice.
  • Arrive fashionably late.  There are few things I dislike more than showing up somewhere with no one to talk to and not much going on.  Besides, asking the cute barman what you missed is the perfect in…
  • Get acquainted and comfortable with change.  The moment you settle for same ‘ol same ‘ol is the moment you become stagnant.  Keep the ball rolling and you will forever grow stronger and wiser.
  • Buy a really great push up bra (or several).  There is nothing more satisfying than incredible cleavage to go with your favourite drop dead gorgeous dress.  Use the power that comes along with it accordingly.
  • Put yourself to bed early.  There is nothing more attractive than a bright-eye, bushy tailed dame with the alertness that can only come with a full night of peaceful rest… hell – stay in bed with your lover all weekend and dose in and out of lust consciousness…
  • Take lessons in something you’ve always wanted to do.  Invite your friends and explore the journey together (that’s how memories are made folks!).
  • Own, acknowledge, and make your biggest imperfections your favourite parts of yourself.
  • Be spontaneous.  Surprise the person you think knows you best with an unpredictable move they could have never seen coming…
  • Let your guard down and be childish.  Run through a sprinkler, draw a heart on your cheek with eyeliner… do things that grown ups can’t find purpose in for the simple sake of pleasure.
  • Confiscate all unflattering light in your home.  Ladies, you know exactly what I mean – those evil fluorescents!
  • Say thank you and be grateful.  Nobody likes a good looking girl with an attitude problem that takes things for granted.  Don’t be another statistic.
  • Practice impeccable manners.  People notice and always appreciate it.  There is something to be said about being one of the few endangered ladies that still exist out there…
  • Have pairs of heels that never see the light of day.  I think you know what I’m getting at.
  • Get professional pictures taken of yourself in all your glory.  One day you’ll thank me when looking back on the beauty you now take for granted.
  • Seal each envelope you send out with a red or pink lipstick kiss – even your bills!
  • Wear a corset, stockings, garters and pasties under a seemingly normal outfit out… take delight in knowing no one else knows your little secret.
  • Whiten your teeth.  A bright smile boosts the confidence and pairs beautifully with a smokey eye and baby pink lips.
  • Take care of your skin.  Scrub, mask and moisturize until it’s as soft as a babies bottom!  Try Lush’s fresh face masks as a treat…
  • Volunteer.  Some of the most bodacious babes like Marilyn and Angelina Jolie have set a good example for beauties doing good around the world.
  • Be financially free.  Work your tush off to own your power and be money drama free.  Financial worries cause wrinkles ladies (big no no!).
  • Go on a wild online shopping spree at Wheels & Dollbaby.  Addicted?  You will be.
  • Listen to Madonna on repeat.  Her mentality should be prescribed medicine for women.
  • Dye your hair a fabulously exotic colour that is incredibly high maintenance.  It will become the reminder you need to always feel fabulous and never slack on investing time into yourself.
  • Travel.  Broaden your horizons, meet new people and recreate yourself for the fun of it every single time.
  • Buy yourself diamonds.  There is nothing more satisfying than accumulating something so over the top frivolous, you can’t help but be reminded that good things come to those who wait (and work smart!).
  • Don’t let your emotions capture you and victimize you.  In situations that don’t deserve your let down guard, understand that you are above them and in control.  The feeling is actually a chemical addiction you are experiencing – the same as you would get from drugs (keep that in mind next time you are caught in the middle of a love triangle).
  • Send that cute guy across the bar a drink.  Make the first move – what do you have to lose?
  • Know when to cut your losses.  Life is short, don’t you want to be spending it the way you really want to be?
  • Encourage gentlemen and indulge in bad boys.
  • Never ask permission for anything in life – only ask for forgiveness when all is said and done.
